Beware that above only ensures the autoreconf rule gets invoked after post-patches, not that it gets invoked before other later rules, which most likely you should ensure too.

This is where dh-autoreconf places it. Unfortunately, the tool doesn't work as described, it still leaves the usual autotools files in a changed state after the clean rule.

You don't want to use dh-autoreconf together with CDBS, I suspect. That one smells like short-form debhelper 7 which clashes with CDBS.

JFTR, from the description of dh-autoreconf:

For CDBS users, a rule is provided to call the dh-autoreconf programs at the right time.

The rule itself is pretty simple:

$ cat /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/autoreconf.mk
# autoreconf.mk - dh-autoreconf integration for CDBS.

       dh_autoreconf $(DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_ARGS)

       dh_autoreconf_clean $(DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_CLEAN_ARGS)

But, as I said before, it doesn't work nicely. Could still be me, though. ;)

Thanks for enlightening me of support for CDBS with debhelper tools.

I am still reluctant to let debhelper take over all areas of packaging, but that possibly is just me being an old, stubborn, conservative fart.
